Sponsored by GRACE seeks to INVEST, GROW, and EMPOWER the next generation right here in the city of Jacksonville through local child sponsorship!
Poverty is not just an international issue. It is prevalent right here in our own backyard. Over 58.7% of African American children grow up in poverty right here in Jacksonville. Close to 30% of children in zip code 32209, live in poverty with a household income of less than $22,000/year.
We believe God has called us to bring the Gospel into our local neighborhoods and we continue to pray for willing hearts and hands to join us.
IN 2018 32209 WAS IDENTIFIED AS THE MOST DANGEROUS ZIP CODE OF THE CITY!
We stand on the true foundation and declare 32209 THE MOST HOPEFUL ZIP CODE!
What do we do? Who are we? Why us?
Sponsored by GRACE exists to empower local children to rise up out of poverty to become leaders through the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
We are a non-profit organization based in Jacksonville, FL, that identifies children living in low income/poverty/high crime areas in our city that we as an organization can come alongside of parents to offer love, encouragement ,hope and most importantly a friendship through a local sponsorship of $56 a month.
We believe that the next generation matters! God has placed this journey of faith in front of us and now we have been directed to walk in obedience.
